Jerome, founder of our favorite denim brand, Citizens of Humanity, is something of a denim whisperer, having influenced denim trends through the ages such as back pocket embroidery in the 70’s and acid wash in the 80’s. Having maintained a commitment to creating this highest quality denim for nearly two decades, Jerome Dahan knows the importance of the perfect fit. Fuelled by creativity and a love of denim, this native Parisian began designing jeans in Montreal and later L.A., co-founding 7 For All Mankind and putting his stamp on other designer brands as Guess and Lucky, before founding Citizens in 2003. Unique and handcrafted to perfection, Citizens' cutting-edge styling, supreme comfort, and perfect fit have charmed the fashion world. The brand uses artisanal craftsmanship, technological innovation, and unparalleled quality. Whether you are looking for a skinny, boyfriend, slim, straight, bootcut, flared, stretch, wide-leg cropped, petite or long? Without a doubt Citizens offers it.
These days, everyone’s talking about vertical integration. At Citizens of Humanity, they actually do it. So what does that mean? As one of the very few vertically integrated denim production facilities in the United States, they manufacture everything at their own sewing and laundry facilities—all located within 15 minutes of their Los Angeles based design studio, giving complete control over the quality of their products. Before they are in your hands, each pair of Citizens jeans passes through the hands of at least forty others. Each and every product has been crafted with integrity.
